Meghan Markle is to appear in a new episode of TV drama series Suits on British television for the first time since her relationship with Prince Harry was confirmed.

The last episode aired in September, months before the US actress's relationship with Harry was made public in November.

The first episode in the second half of season six, following a mid-season break, will debut on UKTV channel Dave on Sunday evening, four days after airing in the US.

Markle plays paralegal Rachel Zane in the legal drama, and has been one of the leading stars since it began in 2011.

Rachel battles with a decision to stay at law firm Pearson Specter Litt or move elsewhere to further her career and become a lawyer.

Viewers will be intrigued to see how Rachel's relationship moves on with ex-con Mike, played by Patrick J Adams, who has been released from prison after authorities discovered he was practising law illegally.

Markle and Adams's on-screen romance has formed one of the main storylines throughout the series and often sees the actors in steamy physical scenes together.

Future episodes could see the pair finally get married after Rachel was jilted by Mike at the end of season five, before he went to prison.

In November, after months of rumours surrounding Markle's relationship with Harry, a statement by his aide Jason Knauf revealed the depths of the Prince's feelings for her while condemning the "wave of abuse and harassment" she had received.

:: Suits returns to Dave on Sunday at 10pm.
